Question

Changing filter in Whirlpool whole house water filter


I changed the filter element in the Whirlpool whole house filiter (WHCF-DWHBB) but when I screwd the housiing back in, there is a nasty leak no matter how hard I tighten (I just broke the plastic wrench they supplied with the unit. The threads appear to be threaded correctly. But there is no rubber gasket sealing the main housing to the unit that holds the pipes and I fear there should be one....now it it plastic to plastic.

Any thoughts? Anyone with a similar problem?

Jim

You are correct, there should be a rubber gasket for a seal. I cannot imagine how it ever sealed without one.

When you dumped the old filter out, the o-ring seal probably fell out too.

WOW, a two year old post is still drawing answers. I hope the OP has fixed the problem by now.
